The WOD's Inaugural Newspaper

LETTER FROM THE MANAGING EDITOR:



The first print publication of The WOD Newspaper is now available, and the website will be launching on Monday, the 28th. Unconventional, I know, to launch both, basically together. But it was necessary because I am also the Managing Editor of ConNotations Newszine, a bi-monthly science-fiction, fantasy, horror & convention newszine of a local Arizona fan group, and the last issue I am producing for them is also coming out this weekend. We wanted to go head-to-head at a growing Amazing Arizona Comicon running this same weekend, so pushed the deadline for the print issue to be the same weekend we planned to have the website's grand opening.
The WOD Newspaper, which will be a monthly newspaper and webzine, will greatly expand the reach I had afforded for Connotations, while piggy-backing on the successful distribution channel of another newspaper I will be revamping, The Eyes of the Superstition Newspaper. Now the shackles of confinement come off in what I was not allowed to do for Connotations, while being able to utilize the successful distribution of both publications.
We will be expanding these numbers with a more successful introduction of these newspapers through several coordinating websites and sales distribution on Amazon, along with the coordinating efforts of expansion into multiple states through the network of fans and fan conventions all over the U.S.  This will become the one-stop location for finding out where the fan conventions are near you and other news/entertainment we as fans crave.
While we can't offer pay for articles at this time, we can offer an ad on the website. And if you become a regular writer for our combined newspaper opportunities, we are working hard to make this paid work in the months ahead.
We are not trying to take advantage of authors and their efforts, we are just trying to get a solid launch of what we know can be an awesome publication that will inform and entertain the fans who flock to conventions every year. We offer what we can.

Being an author myself, I understand anyone's misgivings. However, I have believed in the Connotations newspaper and have volunteered my time and talent for the last year and a half to build this publication up from the ashes of its former self. It had gone from being in the red and an endless money hole, to being able to pay for its production and expanded distribution in just 2 issues. There are peeps who admit to reading this newspaper from cover to cover now.
This is not my first rodeo. I see a winner here, or I wouldn't be giving up my position at Connotations, because I loved it. What I am asking is for some writers to believe in the same thing I do -- that if we build it, we will all benefit from our efforts. I believe in the All-American, idealistic way of the newspaper business, while adding new technology to reach more readers. Wouldn't it be really cool to be a part of this when it really works?

We are accepting article submissions and book and movie reviews for March's issue by the February 15th deadline. Please email me your article suggestions for original content to thewod_editor@yahoo.com.
